For today’s edition of Feature Friday, we bring you a local Bosnian talent and model Dina Pandzic. She was born in the industrial town of Lukavac in north-western Bosnia and Herzegovina. A short time later, Bosnia declared it’s independence from former Yugoslavia following the path of Croatia and Slovenia which led to the start of the Bosnian war. After much hostility and uncertainty, Pandzic’s family decided to leave the war torn country and immigrate Toronto in 1995.
Growing up, Dina always enjoyed being in front of the camera, but her modeling career truly started when she was helping a aspiring photographer friend by posing for pictures. By the time Dina turned 17, she fully dedicated herself to modeling and decided to pursue modeling by attending local modeling events as a side job in hopes of funding her dream goal of becoming a beauty salon owner.
She went on to become a licensed esthetician and now operates her own salon out of Toronto.
Pandzic’s other work includes being involved and dedicating herself to voluntary work in Bosnian and Herzegovina. When visiting BiH, she makes a point to give aid to disadvantage orphans from her country. Without a doubt, she’s a proud Bosnian – having visited many countries throughout her modeling career, Dina wholeheartedly admits that Bosnia is still her favorite travel destination.
When this beauty is not traveling, modeling or running a business, she loves to spend time reading, cooking and exercising.
Young, smart and successful - this Bosnian beauty shows that when you work hard, go for your dreams and give back, success always comes through. All the best to Dina Pandzic with her future goals from the Za-Vas Team.
